No problem.  I'm glad we're in synch.

Insofar as this initial arch doc is a *description* of the existing
architecture, I'd be surprised if a generic interface was even
mentioned!  In fact, I'd like to see specific interfaces called out,
however the group feels that should best be done.  IMO, it should
say something like;

"The semantics of a connector in the Web services architecture are
specified in the associated WSDL for the component, and are most
commonly specific to each component."

When we get into prescribing an architecture above and beyond what
exists today, then I'll bring it up again.  I'm not worried about it
being missed, since it's a requirement.
